Multi-Sub Optimizer (MSO) is a free Windows-based software program for optimizing the bass response of audio and AV systems having multiple subwoofers. It minimizes the seat-to-seat frequency response variation in the bass region while simultaneously optimizing the response flatness at the main listening position. You can choose to have MSO perform this optimization on just the subs, or to include the main speakers in the optimization. In the latter case, it automates the process of integrating the subs with the main speakers, including delay / distance settings and EQ in the crossover region.
Although it’s possible to use it for identical equalization (EQ) of all subs at once, it does not depend on a global EQ approach like commercial room correction systems do. Such systems cannot reduce the seat-to-seat variation of the bass response. Instead, MSO performs optimization of EQ, gain and delay parameters individually for each subwoofer. This individual EQ optimization for each sub causes the variation of the bass response from seat to seat to be reduced, and the bass response at each listening position to be flattened.
MSO can be used to perform tasks that include:
Optimizing subwoofer integration with main speakers through delay, gain and EQ adjustments
Reducing seat-to-seat frequency response variation of the combined sub outputs through optimized EQ of each sub individually
Achieving optimum subwoofer integration via individual sub delay adjustments
Improving response flatness of the combined sub outputs at all listening positions
Creating, specifying and achieving your desired target frequency response curve to shape the bass response to your preference
Plotting your data in a variety of ways
Obtaining filter parameters as text files containing biquad coefficients for import into miniDSP EQ hardware, or for manual data entry into hardware that doesn’t support filter file import.

EdgeSounds’ RatHole (former GenieSys RatHole) is a free unique nondestructive universal compression utility. Its function is based on a principle of self-training neural networks. EdgeSounds RatHole was especially designed for nondestructive compression of any files containing audio data in PCM 8/16/24 bit or IEEE_FLOAT 32 bit format.
A new EdgeSounds compression algorithm makes it possible to efficiently reduce the size of packed audio data and later unpack exactly same bits, with no difference to the original data. The compression algorithm compresses audio data, considering the bit depth of the digital data contained in the audio file (8/16/24/32 bit). The algorithm is proven to be equally effective on compressing the following file types:
Audio files WAV, AU, AIFF, SND;
Ensoniq Paris PAS;
Sample sound banks such as:
AVM Apex bank file APEX
Aureal sound bank ARL
Creative Labs/E-mu System SoundFont banks format 1&2.x SBK, SF2;
Downloadable sounds level 1&2 DLS;
Ensoniq EPS Files EFE, Ensoniq Instruments family files INS, Ensoniq Disk Image GKH;
Gravis Ultrasound /Forte Patch PAT;
Kurzweil 2000-2600 files KRZ;
Seer Systems Reality banks SEERBANKSET;
Turtle Beach WaveFront Bank WFB;
Virtual Sampler bank VSB;
Multi-track audio data as Cakewalk/Sonar BUN, CWB;
Impulse Tracker instrument ITI, Fast Tracker 2 instrument XI;
any other formats containing audio data
The compression ratio of the algorithm depends on the size of audio data, the balance between the tone and noise component, bit depth and other factors, and usually varies from 36% to 78% or even more, with an average of 48-56%. The higher is the bit depth and the fidelity of audio data, the better is the compression ratio.
The RatHole can be successfully used as a common archiving utility for any other file types as well.
It forgets history, To not repeat it. It doesn’t hide analog music hardware, In digital music software. You had pulse, sine, triangle and sawtooth, And went forth and made electronic music. Now there is just the Bezier curve. Go make your pulse, sine, triangle and sawtooths. Or this, this, this and this. TOPLAP Nick thinks this is nothing new, His old men did it in the 60s, Punching numbers into cards. Now you edit waveforms with a GUI, And watch the sound change before your ears. Has it got ADSR? It’s got DADSARSADS. Filters? No because Additive not Subtractive. Modulation? Bezier on Carrier and Modulator. Wolf that Chowning. Notes? Yes + Infinite microtones in between. Input? MIDI Keyboard. Computer keyboard.
This program allows you to find the CD on FreeDB.org and convert it straight into a cue sheet that can be used by musiCutter, CDRWIN or mp3cue. If FreeDB doesn’t have trackdata for the CD, you can try the unique MP3 scanning feature. It will automatically search through a large MP3 file to find split-points and uses them to recreate a new cue sheet. If possible, it can even extract cue sheets embedded in ID3v2 tags.
You can save the cue sheet to a .cue file or a .xmcd file. You can use musiCutter to split the mp3 file into multiple parts using the .cue file, or Brrrn to burn a CD with correct track-markers. CueMaster can also export the tracklist to a .xml, .html, .csv or .text file. And it can write the cue sheet to an ID3v2-tag inside an mp3 file’s (like mp3cue does).
But it has more: you can use it as a full-featured cue sheet editor. Create a new cue sheet from scratch by adding tracks. Cut, copy, paste, delete and move tracks and edit the titles and durations.
